2005 Subaru Outback Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2005 4dr Wagon turbocharged 250hp 2.5L H4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
With gas at almost $4/gal, and driving lots of miles, long distance, I would love to get better than 26 MPG on the highway. I am going to slow down though, and I still do love the turbo. see full Subaru Outback review
